Artemis skipper falls overboard in Cup challenger finals

18 June 2017, 01:53 | Sandy Nunez

Outteridge slipped and flew off the boat as the six-man crew went through its quick, choreographed sprint to change sides while the 50-foot foiling catamaran was turning while going about 27 knots on the fifth of seven legs.

However, the focal point of discussion back on the dock after an exciting day of close racing in trying, flat water conditions was Outteridges dramatic and unscheduled swim. Down to five crewmen, Artemis eased up.

The Kiwi helmsman claimed a 2-1 lead in the Challengers Series finals after Artemis lost their skipper to Bermuda's Great Sound.

Team New Zealand supporters cheer for the team as they leave the dock on day one of the challenger playoff finals against Artemis.

"Even if he didn't fall off, I still felt we were going to take that gate off him", Burling said after the race. "We figured out why they slowed down when we sailed past them on the run".

I am alive and that's important, have no regrets: Yuvraj
Most of my leg-spins would end up as full-tosses but as I joked with my teammates, I got the permission to land that day. One of Yuvraj's best-ever knocks in ODIs came in a game against a strong Australian team at Sydney in early 2004.


In the first race Burling was able to climb back courtesy of two Artemis errors - a miss-timed tack and a penalty for the for crossing the boundary line.

Some calming words from Britain's two-time Olympic champion Iain Percy, telling his Artemis crew to "trust their guts", were behind the Swedish challenger's comeback win in the semi-finals of the America's Cup Challenger play-offs.

Artemis and Team New Zealand will race three times again tomorrow morning.

Team NZ helmsman Peter Burling said they hadn't noticed what had happened to start with. "That last race of the day, we were still generating a serious amount of power on board so we could just keep throwing it through some pretty good maneuvers".

"We had just come out of the top mark with our heads down and doing everything we could to get past them".
